Jurgen Klopp has described Liverpool’s 1-0 loss to Burnley at Anfield as a “punch in the face”.
The Defending Champions have been struggling lately failing to score in over four hours of Premier League football.
Burnley’s Barnes was fouled in the box by Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson with seven minutes to go.
Barnes converted from the spot to earn a vital victory for the visitors which ended Liverpool’s 68-matches unbeaten run at Anfield.
“That keeps the game open and then they get the penalty. Alisson told me he didn’t touch him, but I didn’t see it back”.
“We lost a game which I think it’s actually impossible to lose. But we did it.”
Liverpool has gone four league games without scoring for the first time since May 2000. The Reds have had a total of 87 shots since Sadio Mane’s 12th-minute strike against West Brom, 25 days ago.
Burnley Manager, Jean Dyche hailed his players for working very hard to secure a rare victory at Anfield.
Performance, we had to work very hard, as you do in these places, be diligent and do your jobs – shape was good, energy was good.
We had a golden chance, kept searching, but you have to deal with the basics and we did that very well.
Liverpool have a chance to put their League woes behind them with an FA Cup clash against Manchester United on Sunday.
